“If you feel like you can’t let go of the feeling, ask yourself, ‘Why? What do I need to look at?

What made me vulnerable during my youth was the fact that I had a different childhood compared to most people in my country.November 5, 2016 at 6:01 pm #119708
I don’t have much in the way of any frame of reference for true happiness that isn’t from my childhood which was a lot more peaceful than my youth.
